The Sea Tiger is Oscar’s best friend, Oscar’s only friend.
They do everything together — explore the ocean, visit the sea circus, even swim to the surface to look at the stars.
But Oscar is shy, so it’s up to the Sea Tiger to help him find a new friend.
If nothing else, you should check this one out for the illustrations alone–absolutely stunning, and detailed in such a gentle, soothing sort of way.
But it’s also a beautiful story about two friends, and that fear shy people (like me!) can sometimes feel when faced with people or experiences they’re not familiar with. The Sea Tiger takes the lead and encourages his friend to give others a chance, and that leads to all new adventures!
Well worth a read for shy children and adults alike!
